thats bogus..........No work is supposed to be performed unless you state so.. although if you told him to diagnose the problem, then he can charge you for an inspection fee, but that is all.. He can't charge you hr costs for taking it apart, and putting it on. thats BS...I would straighten shit out with this guy......and PS, taking the door inner trim off takes me a minute and a half....yup...thats just 90 seconds with a screw driver alone..... what a crock of shit if he is going to charge you though... oh, and it sounds like this guy is giving you the run around on prices, changing them here and there, it doesn't sound like he knows how to work on cars, let alone BMW's... anyway, the price of the parts that I showed you should tell you that you should buy the part yourself, if you can, do it yourself, otherwise take your part, to a different shop, and tell them to install the part you bought..
